Work and Earn While You Travel

Taking advantage of great savings at is only the beginning. Once you experience the excitement and joy of travelling, you’ll most probably want to travel more often. In many cases, you don’t want to go back to your home country. Rather, you want to continue traveling from one destination to another. That is pretty much exciting until you come to the realization that in order to travel continuously, you have to have the financial capability to do so. Unless you are a millionaire or you have someone who sponsors your sojourns, you need to have a steady source of income to pay for your airfare, accommodations, tours, food, clothes, and other essentials. Since you will be travelling for months at a time, your employer back in your homeland would likely ask you to resign from your job, unless of course if travelling is part of your job. You see, most employers would not want to continue paying someone who is not always in their office. Imagine yourself as an employer who is busy running a company. You have so many things to do or think about that you really need to have a personal assistant who could ease off your burden. Now, which type of personal assistant would you hire: one that does her work but is constantly out of reach because she’s always travelling? Or one who is just a table away from you? Obviously, you’re going to choose the latter.

So what should you do now? You know you just can’t stay in the office; you want to explore the world! Well, you can try what other frequent travellers do: resign from your boring office job and work while you travel. Yes, the notion is quite frightening if you’re someone looking for a steady, sustainable source of income. But believe us, many travellers have found ways to financially sustain themselves and still do their passion. They are far from being millionaires, but they’re definitely satisfied and happy. Just think: you are able to financially fuel your passion without having to stress yourself out.

If you want to choose a traveller’s road of life while being able to financially support yourself, then the first thing you need to do is to determine your career options. Thankfully, there are several options you can choose from. Here are a few examples:

Casual English teacher

One of the hottest career options for travellers, teaching English to students, both children and adults, can be both financially and mentally satisfying. You are actually doing a noble cause while earning money for your travels.

Online writing

Many travellers use their writing skills and blogs to earn money. They earn by writing articles in other websites, allowing businesses to advertise through their blogs, working as project-based writers for companies, working as social media consultants for companies, etc.

Restaurant work

Some travellers fund their trips by working as temporary waiters, dishwashers, janitors, etc. of a restaurant. There are variations of such jobs such as in hotels, dive centres, tour agencies, etc.

Sales and Marketing

Selling goods and products can earn you quite a lot. Check out companies, particularly firms that engage in single-level marketing, for details on how you can earn by selling their stuff.

Remember, your career should revolve around your lifestyle, not the other way around.
